Applying for US citizenship

2

Well, my UK application for citizenship didn’t go so well (it wasn’t rejected, just delayed pending some more paperwork), so today I’m thinking of applying to change my Green card into a citizenship The infamous N-400 form is all it takes, plus time. According to the USCIS (formerly INS), the application takes less than 6 months to process, so in order to be able to register and vote in the next general election in the US, I’ll need to apply soon. As a green card holder married to a US citizen, it takes 3 years less 90 days before you can apply (everyone else it’s 5 years…)..

Interestingly, like my green card application, the application asks if I am now, or have ever been a member of the Communist Party. I thought that question went out with McCarthy and Edward R. Murrow.

Putting out fires I set

I took the opportunity yesterday to volunteer to help the Sheriff’s office to burn some ditches near IBM in Boulder. We even burned right across diagonal. It was exhausting but good experience in fire behavior. In the middle of diagonal it even got exciting for a few minutes.

They say it was banned, not sure I believe it, but really funny nonetheless.

Jonathan Coulton

1

After playing through Portal (awesome game, need to do a review soon), I heard a quirky song at the end by the monstrous computer who’d been trying to kill me. Well, it turns out this song was written by Jonathan Coulton, and I heard about his life story on TWiT. “Code Monkey” and “Re: Your Brains” are my favourite songs by him.

PS: If you’re wondering, Jonathan licenses under Creative Commons, so it’s ok for me to post the mp3s here.

Woes of cancelling XBOX Live Gold

Just got off the phone with XBOX Live. It takes 3 minutes to enter your corporate card to sign up for one month membership on the console to be able to do a demo at CES, and over 30 minutes on the phone (you cannot cancel on the console or online) to cancel this recurring charge. What a pain!

Mallory Cave hike

Cassie and I took advantage at some warm weather to do a long hike from NCAR. It was quite icy downhill, as the snow hadn’t melted. Here’s some pictures.
